FWIW Microsoft provides evaluation version of Windows that can be easily installed using VirtualBox and runs for 180 days. One that I believe is the closest to the CRAN setup (Windows 2008) is:
You just tell VB to setup a Windows 2008 VM then, select the downloaded ISO as CD-ROM drive and install from it. The installation is fairly easy and then you only have to download Rtools.exe and R from CRAN. I recommend picking a custom location for R that is painless to type, e.g C:\R. To make iteration easier, I also use a shared mount from my machine (e.g. ~/packages -> E:) so I can edit and build the package on my Mac and then just run c:\R\bin\R CMD INSTALL mypackage_0.1-0.tar.gz in the Windows VM is the same directory (you need to install Guest Additions [see the VB menu] to enable shared directories - alternatively you can also just use SMB shares if you want).
